What you'll do

Did you know that chocolate comes from a fruit ? (Yes, it's a shame it's not taken in consideration when doctors talk about eating 5 fruits and vegs a day to stay healthy). In this class, you'll be taught where cacao beans come from, how they were used 2'000 years ago (bet you never had a chance to taste a Mayan hot chocolate, am I wrong ?) and found out more about the specific steps to make chocolate, from bean to bar. Then, we'll jump into the best part: chocolate tasting ! :) You'll then be able to decorate a bar of your own and take it with you to show off :) If you guys travel in large group, we can even use the tent in the garden (above Geneva Lake with a beautiful view), drink coffee, hot chocolate or tea while tasting delicious chocolate ! Can't wait to spend that cool moment with you :)
